At this time of year, tyre choice is something i feel is not spoke about enough. Whether it is a topic riders feel confident enough in their choices that it they don't feel the need to discuss. Or is it something we all leave to chance in a sort of "they will do" because that's what was on it when i bought it etc.
I often feel that i over think things, but is it something we should discuss more?

So what sort of riding do you do, and what set up do you feel suits your riding?

I once made some snow tires using self tapping sheet metal screws. Worked pretty well. Had to be careful not to buss my tire, though!

What do you use?

well at the moment i'm riding bontrager xr4 2.2 front and back, which seem to be just the right balance at the moment with all the wet, but when the mud gets really bad i have a set of panaracer mud pro 1.8's to really cut through it all.
